    Yeah I work about 5 blocks away from there, did not realize there is such a collection close by. Time for some afternoon "sales calls"

    Quoted from klr650:

    161 games for the Neo Geo, but you will only need one...Bust-A-Move!

    I had a 161 in 1 for a neo geo once, there is only a few decent games in the list like above bust a move and ???. Unless you like the king of fighting series. If it's a neo geo cab then worth it, if it's not one of the xxxin1 or blue elf jamma boards are better, plus they usually have all the neo geo's anyway. Just my opinion

    #1273 3 years ago

    There are also Pandora's box which i hear good things about. All these hook to a standard jamma harness, now i can't remember if a Neo Geo Harness is the same as Jamma Harness. Need to watch where your power connections etc

    This guy is in Edmonton and sells both types

    Quoted from blowback1976:

    Someone from Calgary was on their way up today to look at them. Depending what they find, a deposit may be made tonight.

    Well if that someone from Calgary is on here, and does not want to haul all those pinballs back to Calgary. I would be interested in Totan or ARFM. Leave a pin or 2 in Edmonton I say

    I was thinking the same thing. Took Noah a few months to get a pin and he's already selling it??

    Quoted from dirkdiggler:

    Count me in! What about a food and beer aspect and sell it to the travel channel as a reality show? Pins and beers across the great white north? 2 hosers playing pinball? Start in the east and work our way back west? Haha. Would be fun!

    Best pub grub, beers, and pinball in Canada

    Quoted from volkdrive:

    The garage came out nice. Ambient lighting, flat black ceiling, tv wall mount above beer fridge. I've been compiling a video file from YouTube so there can be a music video playing random loop too. It's almost better than the 80s arcade now.

    Ummm Pics please

    I would like to think they are confusing a US dollar price, with our Canadian dollar. But most likely not

    Quoted from TheHueManatee:

    I forgot to mention....
    CTV Edmonton news at 6PM (MST) tonight will have a story about pinball culture in the city. (from collecting to league nights)
    Check it out if you get CTV Edmonton

    Well there goes all the great deals for older pins around Edmonton

    Quoted from dirkdiggler:

    Don't care for the theme but game looks fun. Looking forward to seeing a video of it in action

    If HAS to be better than the Stern version of POTC

    Is SK a Province?

    Complete with our old oil jobs and money, and even a better premier than we have.

    It looked just like that when i picked up Star Trek from you last year.

    Service/Satisfaction

    Those 2 things always equal Sales and Loyalty in my book

    Shipping right now is a complete mystery to most in the shipping business.

    Quoted from FlipperFreak:

    Absolutely. We'll also have the rest of the JJP lineup, Houdini from AP, Thunderbirds from Homepin, Alien LE from Heighway, The Big Lebowski from Dutch/Xytech, the entire series from Chicago Gaming (including CE, SE & LE models), plus latest from Stern and a few surprises we'll announce shortly before the show.

    Your going to need a Bigger truck!!!

    #2489 2 years ago

    Here is my Idea

    Order a NIB Iron Maiden or whatever you like from Nitro.
    Have it shipped directly to your hotel.
    Take the pictures with it.
    Have it at the reception and let people play it.
    Take it home afterwards as a wedding gift to yourself

    Quoted from Spinape:

    Anyone in Edmonton signing up for the fall league at Lucky’s? I’ve never done it before.

    What night does it run? I see the web page talks about the spring league lol

    Would be a good excuse to join to play some more pinball. I work 10 blocks from Lucky's and barely make it over there

    Star trek le or for sure a premium should be around that price range

    #2864 43 days ago

    Yeah an LE would be wishful thinking for under 10k it seems. I was thinking more likely for a premium since they are more readily available

    Quoted from Stretch7:

    Update
    Simple fix ... the right flipper bat didn’t have any spacing from the bushing so it was binding. Adjusted the bat and bushing space and good to go.

    So if you would of been there yesterday, you could of alleviated all that stress and half of a rant on this game being mechanically a complete fail?

    I get it new things should work out of the box, especially the big money for these machine, but sometimes they just don't

    #2945 2 hours ago
    Quoted from Stretch7:

    Yes....but i have to say if anyone quality tested this machine it would have been obvious and shouldn't have left the factory floor until fixed. I was not able to make a loop or ramp shot with that right flipper and barely the center scoop.

    I agree there was a total miss in Q.C if there is even a QC process??
